As a female forum member I really like it. Love the interior improvements...push button start...hate searching for my keys in my Coach Bag. The cooled seats will be really nice in the hot summers in the desert. Think I will order one.

Ill chime in.

My wife wants them to bring back the Steve Mcqueen Green version with nav, heated seats, auto start and rear back up cam on the 2.3 version. She wants it to get 35mpg and ride like a cadillac.

Ok that asking TOO MUCH? Ha ha ha ha

Although it's difficult to be sure looking at the CGI images on the Ford web site, the new color called "Guard" appears similar to the old Highland Green. Of all the colors in the 2015 palette, this is the one I most want to see in person.

An AWD Focus ST would be sweet, especially since the new WRXs won't have a hatchback option.

My wife likes the new mustang style. I put it as the background on my living room HTPC screen, so she sees it every day

Wife is on-board if I want to trade up. Started prepping wife ,kids and friends from the time I ordered 2011 5.0 in 2010 . Said I was really waiting to see what Ford would do with the 50 th Anniversary version. 2015 5.0 may be the keeper if it’s right. Need to decide after I see and drive the car. I really like my 2011 though. Can’t keep them both.

Mine, loved it at first sight. She loves her Jeeps, and this Mustang might get her to buy Ford again. Our Taurus and Windstar days were bitter. We only buy rwd and 4x4 now.

My wife came across it while browsing the web, and the first comment was: "wow, that's an ugly Mustang....looks like a Fusion." Well, her perception is to be expected because she likes old school. Back in the day (70's) she drove Camaro's, so she has an appreciation for retro!
